to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event for our country. like you said, people of other nations do not do this on a regular basis. we do. the cost might not be so expensive if we did not love our guns so much and paid attention to the fact that security is what is costing the big money. host: thank you for the call. this is an etching of the reviewing stand of when president mckinley was sworn in, in front of the white house. the long tradition of having th

as they move into their second term. and i want to talk about that in a second. but i saw jimmy carter yesterday, who helped you an awful lot in your book. and he's been known to not be a joiner, to sometimes be a bit morose. he seemed to be in really good spirits. i don't know if you saw the images yesterday. but he seemed to be in really good spirits yesterday. >> and he was the senior president on the platform there, because george herbert walker bush wasn't there. and he also was elected the president of the united states. he can be charming. it's not in his nature, but he can do it. he plaid the role of senior sort of president yesterday and i think he probably enjoyed that. and it was, of course, a festive moment. >> remember, also, there was a lot in that speech that carter would like. president carter was the first american president to really make a push on the environment, on environmental reform, famously put solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, w

to the president. we just saw 88-year-old jimmy carter arriving on the scene. former presidents are almost always in attendance at these events, but today, george herbert walker bush and his son, george w. bush are not in attendance. the elder mr. bush has recently been released from a month-long stay in the hospital due to a respiratory ailment and so both bush families announced that they would not be able to attend because of the poor health of the elder george bush. the president after taking the oath of office will deliver his second inaugural address. following that, kelly clarkson will be singing "my country 'tis of thee." and these are the supreme court justices being led in, led by chief justice of the united states john roberts jr. who delivered the oath in 2009. here is the first lady as she is coming in to the capitol. as we mentioned earlier, she's wearig a dress and a coat by the american designer thom browne. navy blue we are told. there's justice sotomayor. nominated to the supreme court by president obama. she will deliver the oath of office to the vice president. justice elena k

and secretary of state hillary clinton and former president jimmy carter and wife roslyn. we are just minutes away from the arrival of, of course, the vice president, jill biden, and the president and first lady and their family. it's exciting. it's electric. we've got great weather, especially compared to four years or so here, and i have to say before the program sort of settled in, i saw more collegiality on the platform in terms of members of congress, both democrats and republicans, commingling, glad handing each other, coming up to the front of the rail, if you will, looking at the crowd, taking pictures, if you will. now, if only we can bottle that for the rest of the time here in office. again, great to be back on this perch again. by the way, in all those inauguration facts that you could look up, the one i thought was kind of amazing, the platform behind me, 10,000 square feet at a cost of $1.2 million to hold about 1,600 vips. of course, all the members of congress, the justices, the cabinet, et cetera. so you can't have an inauguration without some kind of a stimulus program. back

john f. kennedy, george h.w. bush, lyndon johnson, president jimmy carter and we'll wrap up the night at 11 eastern with george w. bush's speech. starting tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. >> why did you write a book about your experience? >> it was an important part of history. i felt it should be brought to bear. there had been some other accounts of the crisis i thought were not completely accurate in terms of what we did and what i did. so i thought it was important for the historical record to present our perspective and for people to understand there were different policy choices and options, disagreements. and that if we want to prevent another crisis from happening again, i really felt the public itself needed to engage more on financial reform, educate themselves better. make it an issue with their elected officials. so i have some policy recommendations at the end of it that i hope people will look at. >> the former head of the deposit corporation on the government's worst financial crisis. her book is bull by the horns sunday at 8:00 on c-span's q&a. yournl continues.

, not that he doesn't mind, but many a president like jimmy carter is often left for a long time and come back. but the fact is, you stay there through out and you have to be fixated on every single marching band and every one of the 2500 different players who are going to be part of that extravaganza. it is a chance for the presidents to unite with the people, bond with the people after an inaugural address that just -- as you were getting into earlier -- divided some people because a lot of republicans in this town are wincing after words, the feeling that to the olive branch, trying to extend the debt ceiling another few months, they got a finger thrown back at them, so they are not happy. they are not happy. lori: what is the crowd like? and know it looks absolutely enormous from here, and it is, you know, more than a million people certainly. he would not come out here beyonce of nothing else. it is smaller than it was last summer around. neil: i covered a number of these things. over the years. as i can tell 500,000 from two and a half. a lot of people is a lot of people. the way the pre
